The erosion of the seabed in front of coastal structures induced by waves can lead to multiple types of failure instability or function of the structure. On this topic most research has been done into erosion in front of vertical structures. For sloping structures a knowledge gap exists in the understanding of the processes that lead to erosion...

This work studies crownwalls with a fully curved face versus a vertical wall in non-breaking wave conditions. Its aim is to provide appropriate tools that can be used to compare the performance of the two structures in terms of loading and overtopping. To this end, small scaled experiments of the two structures are carried in a flume with a flat...

Several failures of recurved concrete crownwalls have been observed in recent years. This work aims to get a better insight within the processes underlying the loading phase of these structures due to non-breaking wave impulsive loading conditions and to identify the dominant failure modes. The investigation is carried out through an offline one...

Toe design is an important task for coastal engineers as it ensures the stability of the main armor layer and prevents scour in front of the armor slope. Several laboratory experiments have been conducted to investigate the toe stability using different testing approaches, i.e. damage due to a single test condition and cumulative damage due...

The amount of wave overtopping at coastal structures such as vertical caisson breakwaters is strongly dependent on the angle of wave attack. The reducing effects of oblique waves on wave overtopping compared to perpendicular wave attack has been studied by means of three-dimensional wave basin tests. In these physical model tests the caisson...

In the mid-nineteenth century, civil engineering and technological innovation began to play a major role in the modernization and westernization of Japan. From the 1870s to the 1890s, Dutch civil engineers worked with Japanese practitioners on the design of Japanese ports, a key starting point for urban development. This article explores the...

Floating breakwaters are applicable in several offshore applications to protect downstream structures from excessive wave loads and to reduce their motion response. This thesis investigates the impact of the leading platform, functionally a breakwater, on the RAOs and response of the platforms behind it in frequency domain. The structures are...

On the seabed in front of coastal structures sediment movement takes place due to incoming waves. The erosion of sediments creates a scour hole at the toe of structures such as embankments, breakwaters and dikes. This scour hole may lead to instabilities in the main structure due to material sliding into this hole. A common method of protecting...

The Oscillating Water Column (OWC) device is one of many available technologies for generating electricity from water waves. It is a caisson-like structure, which houses a water column in an enclosed chamber with an inlet at the bottom. Waves enter the device, exciting the water column. The trapped air above is forced out through a turbine,...

In this research OpenFOAM is used to model and determine the complex hydrodynamic behaviour of a Homogeneous low-crested structure (HLCS) consisting of cubipod artificial concrete elements. The validated model is used to gain insight in the design sensitivities of a two dimensional cross sectional layout to reduce sea wall overtopping. HLCS and...

In the current breakwater design process, not all feasible concepts can be explored due to time constraints. However, designers are also influenced by breakwaters constructed near, or at the same location as their breakwater project. But also conservative assumptions influence the breakwater design process, for instance, regarding the wave...

Coastal resilience is often achieved by traditional civil engineering projects, such as dikes and breakwaters. However, given the pressing nature of Climate Change, integrating energy converters in “classical” structures can enhance innovation, and help in pursuing decarbonisation targets. In this work, we present an alternative for integrating...

The stability of breakwaters in seismically active areas is not always guaranteed. A new approach to model a breakwater subjected to an earthquake is with PM4Sand. The goal of this research is to find if breakwaters subjected to earthquakes can be correctly modelled with PM4Sand.<br/>To investigate PM4Sand a breakwater subjected to an earthquake...

During a previous research project, a parametric model for conceptual layout design has been developed. The model uses optimisation using genetic algorithms to approach the optimal breakwater layout for specific locations. <br/>The developed model serves as a successful proof-of-concept. In the model, several aspects of design have been...

The purpose of this MSc thesis is to do an experimental study into the spatial and temporal variation of rocking armour units. Armour units on a breakwater slope under wave loading can sometimes start to move back and forth, this phenomenon is known as rocking. Rocking can lead to significant impacts between armour units, which can result in...

This report considers a possible port expansion in port of Scheveningen, The Netherlands. The problems considered are brought forwards in the plans introduced by Dr. Ir. Waterman and are tackled from multiple disciplines. These problems relate to the recharge of the freshwater-lens, reachability of the port, flood protection of the Tweede Haven,...

XblocPlus is a single layer armour unit that is recently developed by BAM Infraconsult. It is the successor of the Xbloc. An important advantage of the XblocPlus is the relatively high construction speed compared to the Xbloc. The increased construction speed is caused by the possibility to place XblocPlus in a uniform pattern and the relatively...

Bardawil Lagoon is a tidal lagoon situated at the northern coast of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt. It’s two artificial inlets, Boughaz 1 in the West and Boughaz 2 in the East, provide a connection to the Mediterranean Sea. They enable the water bodies to interact and support fish migration. Currently, regular maintenance dredging works are...

Worldwide, rubble mound breakwaters are designed and built to shelter and protect coastal areas from overtopping and flooding, especially harbours and shorelines. Rubble mound breakwaters are essential to preserve desired hydraulic conditions within the hinterland, avoiding damage to inhabited or industrial areas. This research focuses on the...

When a breakwater is under heavy wave attack, the concrete armour units will occasionally move, causing a collision between two concrete armour units. This process is called rocking, and induces stresses in the concrete, that may lead to breakage of the concrete armour units. This MSc Thesis provides a probabilistic method to predict breakage of...
